Page 71 of my graphic novel.  The script is right at 100 pages at this point, so I have 28 left to draw.

The book was originally 106 pages.  Two of the ones I eliminated were a long, text heavy exposition right in the middle that I replaced with a shorter graphic one on pages 37 and 38.  The other four are cases where I originally had a conversation spread across more pages than it actually took.  Drawing in half-sheet panels gives me a lot more room for dialogue than I had in drawing The Iliad, and it reads better if the two people talking to each other are on the same page.  If you split it into two panels, the way I had it originally, in the reader’s mind it sounds like they’re having a long-distance phone conversation.  This is one such example.
